Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

A/C turned off on its own. Consumer has come close to having an accident, trying to push buttons to turn it back on. Consumer felt this was unsafe. Consumer noticed steam, pulled over, and it was gushing coolant out. Took to dealer, and they said water pump went out, and thermostat failed. Consumer felt lucky this didn't cause a fire. Also, ABS flashed on and off sometimes.
